Drawing Connections: For Thursday, February 3rd

For Thursday, choose one of the readings from last week's lab. It can be one that you summarized, the one we discussed in class, or another that's interesting to you. In the comments, talk about the connections between this article and Danticat's book. Think about how to use specific language to make those connections. What other information or details would you like to know that would help you explore these connections further?
